Cuckmere Haven 4/7/17

Despite regular visits to the Cuckmere recently, this evening was the first notable session for migrants. The lower water levels on the meanders doing some good as two juvenile Little Ringed Plovers were present. Other common bits were present but most pleasing were the two young Oystercatchers that have finally spread their wings. How birds like these survive on the scrape is a miracle but this is now the second year running of successful fledging.

Totals are:
Little Ringed Plover - 2 juv
Redshank - 2 juv
Dunlin - 1

 recently fledged Oystercatcher - being without a lens currently my only photography is with my phone through my bins.
the meanders looking ideal for Small Red-eyed Damselflies but none this evening. Seaford Head in the backround.
